Composers and musicians often travelled in search of artistic inspiration and growth, e.g. Prix de Rome. But of course they also did so to give concerts. Commonly known is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's tour of Europe in the second half of the 18th century, but Belgian composers such as François-Auguste Gevaert, Adrien François Servais, Adolphe Samuel, Hendrik Waelput, Robert Herberigs and Martin Lunssens also explored Europe. Remarkably, they all eventually returned to their heimat.

The exhibition highlights these journeys and shows scores from our collection, including old prints and manuscripts.
